Osprey on the hunt

I never really noticed how they spread their tail feathers when they hover above the water looking for fish.  It must help stabilize them.

One thought on “Osprey on the hunt

  1. ‘Putting on the brakes.’ I nearly got rear ended in the car when I suddenly slowed to view a similarly hovering Swainson’s Hawk from the front windshield directly above me a few feet. While I was gaping in awe, looking up, all other drivers — engaged with their tiny screens — were clueless, honking.

    Magnificent shot, Neil.
